Using reference to CDN URL in stylesheets for fonts | is it recomended?

Level 2

Hi,

I am looking at attempting to use a CDN url in one of the stylesheets of one of my application's clientlibs.

Example syntax will be as below:

@font-face {
  font-family: 'HMAmpersand';
  src: url("<<CDN's URL>>");
  }

Query here is: is it recommended to do so? or are there any major pitfalls to get past in the above mentioned approach?

Any pointers will be really handy.

Thanks,

Hemant

Hi

Sorry for the delay in the response:

Having a Content Delivery Network (CDN) such as Akamai, Amazon CloudFront, or CloudFlare in front of your CQ/AEM Dispatchers is of tremendous value if your audience spans the Globe and/or your request traffic is prone to unexpected spikes.  A CDN allows you to run fewer CQ/AEM servers, saving on licensing as well as other runtime infrastructure costs.

Please have a look at this reference artilces:
